They say the East Coast and West Coast differ in manners, culture, and even the way people look at life. Does this translate to naming babies, too?
Well, the names Emma and Olivia reign supreme on either coast, as do popular names such as Liam, Noah, and Isabella. But there is some divergence. You won’t find the name Mateo among the top 25 names on the East Coast, nor will you find Camila or Sofia.
To help explain these naming patterns, 24/7 Wall St. has compiled a list of the top 25 names trending higher on the West Coast, using data obtained from the Social Security Administration.
